The Degree of Freedom


June 2, 2012. 82-minute dharma talk by Thich Nhat Hanh from Lower Hamlet in Plum Village during the 21-Day Retreat with the theme The Science of the Buddha. The talk is given in English and this is the first dharma talk (of 15).


  • Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing – the first four exercises

Our teacher and the sangha feels very relaxed. In no hurry. We have 3-weeks to practice and learn.
